I love the orange / yellow folding picnic table with that first one. I've never seen one that colour before.

I think I might encounter some domestic bother were I to buy another Dandy just because it came with a nice picnic table however Neutral

This one's cute and with only a day to go it's cheap too ...... I know it's not original but I think it looks rather smart outside with lots of potential inside. Is it me or doe's it look like it may have designer style seats inside ?

Yes if you look at the 'bed side' in front there seem to be box type units that designers have to put cushions on to create seating, in another photo it shows it with a mattress type thing over them to create a small bed.

It looks like an old 5 so originally a discovery layout, but not converted to a true designer layout. The extension to the kitchen is still there whereas that should be the seat in a designer.

The walls have been recovered using an old awning that sounds like it may have been PVC?

Its a blue trailer but with brown cover so should be light blue & white 90s.
The back is brown and seems to have vertical awning flaps indicating it's 60s early 70s?

The back is navy like the front, the roof shape looks like an earlier Dandy I suspected it to be a 5 originally ..... wonder if they painted the trailer and made it look like the blue Dandy's to fit in better with the new colour walls. Then again it has the light blue Dandy carpet inside the tub ....... I'd love to know more about this one without actually buying it to find out Laughing

Some tat on Gumtree at the moment:

A light blue Delta, not winterised, no mention of a heater or an awning £1,950 not even £1,950 ONO [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] It's only as far as the Scottish Boarders to pick up though. Oh sorry it was £1,990 the £40.00 off will make all the difference.

Advertised in two different locations 80's 5 £500 [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] & [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Have your wits about you.

A 6 for £300 then you notice the rip. Then you read how he is selling his awnings separately [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Then a change an Orange Dandy can't make out if it's grey painted ply sides or plastic but it has the older wooden seat prop. With an awning only £225 [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Preloved:

A Lowside Destiny with awning £1,700 Heater but only single skin sides. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

A Delta with awning no mention if winterised or of a heater £1,200 ONO [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Then the nice one a Designer winterised, heater and awning £1,300 ONO [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Not sure if PVC or not but has the non opening windows. Look to the front RHS. Possibly similar to the rear. Rear over sink opens I can't tell on the other one becauseof the curtains but I'd expect it not to open.

Saw this yesterday and intentionally said nothing: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] A truly classic ad anyway I emailed the seller and as far as I can tell it could be a genuine sale it has a heater. As far as she can remember it's one colour inside so it might be insulated. She thought it was blue at first. Alas no awning but if it had an awning for that price I would have been on my way to pick it up today.

You can reply to the ad but I have the phone no as well. I'll post this in the moderators area if you are interested PM whichever moderator is on line when you are.

This one put on over £200 in the last hour and they could still have a bargain. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

It's a 2003 and looks like dark blue but in the old shiny PVC rather than the matt PVC used from 2004 on. The kitchen looks like a crossover as well without those awkward triangular side pieces.

This one looks nice for its age. It's a four, I think, and has an unusual window arrangement and both beds convert to settees.

The flat-fronted, rounded corner doors on the kitchen unit look very smart. I can't recall seeing them on any other Dandy.

Mine are flat fronted but not rounded corners. 2003 was a year of great experimentation as they transitionewd from light blue to dark blue.

It's got a square topped door and aluminium trim round the door whereas the dark blues have white plastic trim with a semi octagon topped door.
